Make equipment dollies or piano dollies using workbench castersThese dollies are made like piano dollies which you can rent to move pianos. I had a piano to move but also wanted to move my equipment around the shop. You can lift up one end of the cargo to slip the dolly underneath, then do the other end, then wrap a strap around the bottom and press the lever to raise the cargo up about 3/4”. For the piano, I used a 2×4 on the angle irons to raise the piano to over 2 inches to make it easier to get past door sills and similar obstacles. You could also move your workbench or other heavy equipment with these dollies.In photo 3 the wheels are up.
In photo 4 the wheels are down.
To move irregular sized equipment like the band saw, I used wood as wedges to keep the dollies vertical.

Pickup truck ramp for moving equipment or piano

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Pickup truck ramp for moving equipment or pianoI made this ramp to load a piano into the truck. It is made from 2×10 SYP eight feet long with two aluminum brackets rated for 700 pounds each. I added two five foot sections underneath to add more rigidity, plus the two side rails. It worked fine with a 500 pound piano plus four people pushing and pulling.The ramp also worked well to span steps going into the house, so we didn't have to lift the piano off the ground.
